Female American Goldfinch Among The Branches
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

The birds of the heaven have their habitation which sing among the branches..
Psalm 104: 12
I thought at first this bird was getting building materials together for a nest but then I read that the goldfinches do not breed until late summer around August when thistledown is available for their tightly woven nests...She was grabbing the soft dried blossoms and leaves off the Olive Tree when I shot this picture of her today and she was eating it...to perhaps supplement her diet. I learn something new every day with nature and birds teach us so eloquently how to live the simple life.
Song birds in natures habitat
Know exactly where it's at...
On the branches of an Olive tree.
When they use their brain,
To sing joy among thee,
We learn they've sung it simply.
For peace on earth to reign...
Poetry by me, AJP
